Better late than never, right?  This was one of the cards I sent out for Christmas last month.   I managed to get it posted to Instagram, but not over here.  Don't know if they're spreading joy or just waiting for a treat to come their way!

I did a little stenciling behind this cute group but it's hard to see.  I seem to either have a really heavy hand with that - or no hand at all.   The stamp is from Simon Says Stamp and then sentiment from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by...........

The Slacker Is Back

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and yes.....Happy Valentine's Day too!  I'm least for today.

I saw the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge last week and really liked it so figured I'm give it a whirl.  I attempted a technique that Jennifer McGuire showed using alcohol inks and water for the background on this card.  I don't have any alcohol inks so used some Copic refills.  The hearts are from Stampin' Up.

What surprised me most of all was that I didn't turn my craft area into a pink, red, and blue room due to spilling the water everywhere.  I also didn't end up looking like a pink Smurf either which was a plus.

I'll enter this in the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.

Thanks for stopping by............and I'll hopefully be back soon.
